Semantic Entity Retrieval Toolkit

The Semantic Entity Retrieval Toolkit (SERT) is a collection of neural entity retrieval algorithms.

Currently, it hosts an implementation of the following models:

Prerequisites

SERT requires Python 3.5 and assorted modules. The trec_eval utility is required for evaluation and the end-to-end scripts. If you wish to train your models on GPGPUs, you will need a GPU compatible with Theano.

Getting started

To begin, create a virtual Python environment and install dependencies:

[cvangysel@ilps cvangysel] git clone git@github.com:cvangysel/SERT.git
[cvangysel@ilps cvangysel] cd SERT

[cvangysel@ilps SERT] virtualenv SERT-dev
Using base prefix '/Users/cvangysel/anaconda3'
New python executable in /home/cvangysel/SERT/SERT-dev/bin/python
Installing setuptools, pip, wheel...done.

[cvangysel@ilps SERT] source SERT-dev/bin/activate

(SERT-dev) [cvangysel@ilps SERT] pip install -r requirements.txt

Afterwards, follow the examples for expertise retrieval or product search.
